What a celebration! Despite a few summer afternoon  pop-up showers, 4th of July events in Birmingham went off without a hitch. Bham Now did its part visiting  American Village, watching UAB’s Community Band and Thunder on the Mountain. We even got to catch a glimpse of  Vulcan’s new light show.

Check out our Facebook Live videos and photos below.

Enjoy!

Here are the Facebook Live videos taken by Bham Now during the 4th of July. We kick-off with the Battle over Concord Bridge at American Village between the Patriots and Redcoats  at American Village in Montevallo.

Our view of Thunder on the Mountain from UAB on the University Boulevard and 13th Street Overpass.

Vulcan’s new multicolored LED lighting. The upgrade celebrates Kiwanis Club of Birmingham’s 100th anniversary.
